The NFC Forum created the “Special Interest Groups” (SIGs) that will bring together leaders from the areas of Consumer Electronics, Health Care, Payment, Retail, and Transport to collaborate on NFC solution implementation, interoperability, best practices, and future requirements. With this, the SIGs will enable the NFC Forum to take a more active role in driving NFC solutions development, deployment, and adoption. Analysts estimate that more than 100 million NFC-enabled phones were sold in 2012 and close to 300 million will be shipped in 2013. NFC Forum membership is at an all-time high, and the organization has achieved major milestones in specification development and certification. Each SIG leverages the Forum’s alliance partnerships in that area, for educating the market on use cases; gathering business requirements to drive new or modified technical work; exploring ways to speed or smooth certification of NFC-enabled devices; establishing and managing liaisons with other groups to further collaboration efforts; and creating regional programs as needed.
